Black and white off the shoulder Top

Pairing a light off the shoulder black and white top with a flared black and white bohemian skirt with sequins. I finished the look with a pink peep toe suede pump to bring in a splash of color for a summer breeze to the outfit. [Read more…]

Lady In White :: White Lace Appliqué Top & Mesh Skirt

White Lace Appliqué Top, body suit, body blouse, White mesh flare skirt, pink top handle bag, Manolo Blank Lara Ankle Wrap D'orsay sandals, Karen Walker Tortoise Shell Starburst Sunglasses

There I go. There I go (in my Chuck Brown singing voice) with white again. I like this pairing, kind of like a fairy princess. In fact on my outing someone mentioned that to me. I wore this look in black prior on the blog. While the black gives the appeal of an evening out, the white gives more of a look for an afternoon tea. I layered in this white lace appliqué top with a shell since the body blouse is sheer, for a subtle revelation of the flesh. I am sure it will be restyled again. [Read more…]

Shadow Lover :: Pink Blazer & Black Leather Shorts

Pink Blazer, White Tee Shirt, Silver Necklace, Karen Walker Sunburst Tortoise Shell Sunglasses, Just Cavalli, Leather Shorts

Thank Goodness It’s Friday! I’ve been on a mini hiatus from the blog caring for a family member, who required most of my undivided attention and really no room to edit and prepare content for the blog. Things are all better now, needless to say that I am playing catch up. Now that we are officially in the fall season, I am taking advantage of the last few days in warm weather. I put together this contemporary look of a rosy pink blazer and hot pants leather shorts. I mixed in accessories of the sunburst tortoise shell, pink leopard sandals, zebra print bag for a sweet finishing touch and the bold silver bib necklace over a white tee shirt. I love how the shorts elongate my legs, pretty edgy I think but I love how this look turned out.

Flower Power :: Flower Pants and Indian Pink Top

Flower_Pants_1Wearing white after Labor Day in some people book is the forbidden. I never was one hemmed down by rules because creativity is not limited, even when it comes to fashion. I finally got around to styling this wonderful flower pattern Ryan pant by Banana Republic. I purchased these months ago during a visit to the mall during the spring. I was deciding which shoe to wear with the look and triplicated between blue black and white. I went with black Steve Madden Maddye open-toe booties to give the look a sexy and edgy feel. I captured this look two different ways and hope that you can let me know what is different. As a visionary you can see things in your imagination prior to manifestation, but somehow we did not capture it quite as I had envisioned. [Read more…]

Butterfly :: Stripes & Colorblock

Stripes-Colorblock-1

This look turned out to be quite unique with the sunglasses. It makes me think of a transformational butterfly. Watching the leaves, which some have fallen from our afternoon and nightly rainstorms, one can easily sense that fall is just around the corner. Kelly hues and nature of the earth’s foliage reminds me of the country. I guess the suburbs can be a little bit country at times. Grown up in the city, I am a southern belle at heart. I wore this combination to church Sunday, and covered my shoulders with a blue pashmina. The humidity here lately has been vicious and the three-digit degree weather makes you lose your freshness in a minimum of five minutes. Yes, in August it’s hotter than June and July. I just want to be inside with the air conditioning.

Romantic Ruffles :: Black Top and Shorts

Romantic_Ruffles_1

This outfit mix of romantic ruffles is another version of this lace top re-styled with the side ruffle shorts. Casual chic and proper femininity gives the appeal of a mini skirt. I like the slight flair in the shorts that extend my legs. I thought to pair the look with red accessories heels and clutch for an ultra-trendy flair. [Read more…]

Twirl :: Black Cage Top & Periwinkle Skirt

Runway_Lightblue_skirt

A pretty flare, flowery, or midi-skirt can easily create a vibe of elegance. Lately, I have been enamored with the ladylike decorum of a tulle skirt. I paired this black cage knit sweater with a periwinkle blue tulle skirt. I like the softness of the blue mixed with the contrast of black that makes the style look edgy yet elegant. To give this pairing a little volume, I added my favorite waist belt to anchor the look. [Read more…]

Tutu Fairy :: Black Appliqué Top & White Tulle Skirt

Tutu_Fairy_1

A fashionable (tutu) tulle skirt never goes out of style. Many of us still remember the opening score of Carrie Bradshaw in the stylish Sex and the City series, yet constantly intrigued by her chic fashion. I like the look of a tulle skirt that provides a classy, elegant flirty-fun look in one glance. While on the hunt for a fitted white long sleeve tee to match the skirt, I discovered this appliqué bodysuit top with rainbow shops. I love the way the shoulder placement of the appliqué design gives a subtle cap sleeve effect. To add both fashion and comfort, I paired the black and white uniform look with pink leopard kitten heels. [Read more…]

Conformed:: Cinched Waist Pants & White Tee

Wax_Jeans

There’s always that convenient pair of sweatpants for the quick errand or grocery store run. Needless to say how easy and comfortable the loose fit is when you just want to relax a little. I’m a huge fan of skinny jeans but now and then, I love a baggy pair or the trending boyfriend cut.
